91 Contemporary Representational works will be on view from the largest competition in the world for Representational Art. ARC, a 501C3, non-profit educational foundation, and leader of the revival of Realism in Contemporary Art, received 4,941 entries from 83 countries and spanning six continents to their 15th International ARC Salon Competition. The works represent a diverse grouping of artists of different ethnicities, genders and backgrounds from around the world. The public opening will be held on July 17, from 11am to 3pm. Please RSVP to attend this event.

A groundbreaking, first ever, online auction entitled Contemporary Realism: Important 21st Century Works, consisting of 28 pieces from the show, is being hosted on Sothebys.com during the exhibition dates.

The ARC has also partnered with Fashion Week San Diego® (FWSD), California’s largest traditional fashion week, to present “Art and Beauty Behind Fashion,” on July 24th , where nine FWSD designers will debut their original couture outfits on live models, paired with and inspired by premier pieces from the 15th ARC Salon Competition. Tickets to “Art & Beauty Behind Fashion” will be an exclusive event requiring an RSVP to be made in advance at [email protected]

The exhibition will then travel on to the European Museum of Modern Art, (MEAM) in Barcelona, Spain from October 8, 2021 – December 12, 2021, where it will hang alongside the MEAM’s representational painting and sculpture competition, Figurativas.
